Dropped school on the resume?

Are we required to write a grad school that is not finished on the resume? Or we may leave it out of the resume and may answer IF an interviewer asks.

It's your resume; do what you want. I'd personally leave it off.

I left my unfinished grad school on my resume. It was actually a decent conversation starter and no one saw it as a negative. Now that I'm a working lawyer I'll probably leave it off.
